How to make Swedish Tea Ring:
  • Take a large bowl and put water in it.
  • Dissolve the yeast in this water, by stirring it for 5 minutes.
  • Add butter, sugar, eggs, salt, cardamom and flour. Make smooth dough. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hrs.
  • Now, take out the dough from the refrigerator and let it rest at room temperature, for 20 minutes.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured board and roll out to make a 2020 to 2424 inch square.
  • Spread a thin layer of softened butter right to the edge.
  • Mix sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the butter.
  • Now, roll the dough in strands, pinching the ends together and forming a ring.
  • Grease a baking sheet and place the rolls on the sheet, shaping them into a ring.
  • With scissors, cut almost through the ring at 1/2 inch intervals.
  • Turn each piece, so that the cut side is exposed. Let them rise for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or till they turn golden.
  • Mix all the glaze ingredients and sprinkle on top.
  • The tea rings are ready to serve.
